Christmas is not about the lights–and it is.

Christmas is not about the lights–and it is.

Christmas will be here before we know it. This year with our addition to the family who has begun to crawl and getting faster each day, I’m not certain that a Christmas tree is going to be a good idea.

He already seems obsessed with anything which has a wire attached so I can see that a shiny space ship object in the corner of the room being way to much temptation for young Rudy to cope with added to which the prospect of any major interior fall out already seems to much for Mummy to cope with!

At Christmas time I also usually adorn the house with fresh berries and flowers but can just see this going wrong too. Ideally I’d like to avoid a dash to A&E over the Christmas period so, I’ve been thinking of other ways I can decorate the house in order to give him that magical first christmas and also to make us feel ‘christmassy’ without our tree.

I’ve my eye on a few lights which might do the trick and after all as someone somewhere said once  ‘Christmas is one of those holidays that is all about light. It’s spiritually illegal to have any darkness in it’

Look at this magical little scene below, it looks like the inside of a little Scandi shack. I can imagine thick and fluffy snow piling up outside and feeling very cosy inside with a glass of something to keep the cold away.

There’s plenty of gorgeousness here to covet, like the illuminated domes which would look excellent on our window sills. I also love the trio of fir trees, giving depth to a side table or perhaps a dark corner that you’d like to fill.



Pictured amongst others is the Aspen Forest Illuminated Dome (centre)

I really like this mirror effect below and its one I’m aiming to recreate. Whilst I don’t own a shiny gold mirror or have any hard wood flooring, I do have a stand alone mirror so might just give it a whirl.





BUT…my absolute FAVOURITE which we can’t really do without is the fantastic Halmstad Stag carnival light pictured below. It looks like a Reindeer to me and with a son called Rudy who is basically going to own this time of year then this is a sure fire purchase, one we will hang up in our family home for years to come.




Muted grey wooden stag silhouette radiates a wonderful warm white hue. It’s perfect positioned in porches, windows and hallways from it’s rustic rope


I found these lights in the Christmas range from Lights4Fun ….please visit the website All images shot by Oliver Perrott


When the lights arrive and the house is decorated I’ll share the results for you to see.
